The Beginner’s Guide to Winning an Election

We rated this book:


Brit Kitridge is flying through high school at Hawthorn High in Bloomington, Indiana. She had everything planned out. She was going to get a scholarship to college and get involved in the medical field, but things start to change. She joins TM, a group of students who work to get Matthew Boltanski elected for student body president. She suspects something fishy is going on, and when she falsely is accused, she decides to add herself to the race. She starts up her campaign with her best friends and is determined to unravel the secrets that TM is keeping. But the stakes are high, and she keeps asking herself if can she win. I recommend this book for anyone interested in politics. This book is set in 2025 and lets you see how politics can be in the future. It also helps you understand politics better and how it can affect kids. It also enlightened me more about what happens in the real world. The Beginner’s Guide to Winning an Election teaches you about honesty, teamwork, consequences, and good work ethic.

On her way to accomplishments, Brit learns about all of these principles—helping her decipher between right and wrong, even though that line can get a little blurry at times. It also gives you a perspective of what kids have to go through during high school—such as dealing with rumors and being underestimated by others and other kids posting means things about each other on social media. Brit, being an underdog rising up to try and be student body president, makes others like her wonder if they can try something usually reserved for popular kids. So, it’s very easily relatable to other students trying to get through their school life.

The story seemed very real and felt like that this could really happen in the real world. Author Michael R. French did a good job at making his dialogue and points clear and used great vocabulary that kept you on your toes., although this did make the book more difficult for myself and probably others to read. I also never thought that the book was dragging or boring in any parts of the story. There was always something to keep it interesting. This is a fast-paced book and did not take me long to read. I honestly did not find any criticism to give to this author.
